Spooky city ghost walks

Mon, 20/10/2014 - 18:02

Take part in a walking tour around Lichfield’s historical city centre, and be guided to the places where ghosts have been spotted over the years.

Visit Lichfield’s Gruesome and Ghostly tours are a haunted highlight of Lichfield’s autumn and winter calendar. Led by Green Badge tour guides, the walks take in the Guildhall prison cells, the history of the Market Square burnings, the ghosts sighted at Dam Street, The Close and more.

Councillor Ian Pritchard, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Growth & Development, said: “As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, this is the perfect time to discover the dark and mysterious side of Lichfield - if you’re brave enough! Don’t forget to wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes.”

The walk is rounded off with a visit to a local pub for a glass of mulled wine and a sausage roll.

The tours are running on 20, 22, 28 and 29 October, and 11, 19, 20 and 26 November 2014 at 7pm.

Gruesome and Ghostly tours need to be booked in advance, and cost £6.25 a ticket. To book, please visit Tourist Information at St Mary’s in the Market Square or call the team on 01543 256611.
